Enjoying Mother's Day

We celebrated Mother's Day yesterday here in New Zealand, and I had a lovely day.

On the Saturday I had been out with my mum and sister for breakfast, where I had a great smoked salmon, poached eggs and mushroom feed plus an extra large coffee. I love my coffee.

No breakfast in bed for me, as I was up at 7am to make myself an omelette and get ready for the Jennian Homes 5k Mother's Day Fun Run/Walk. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed running this course and will share an in-depth report of the run this week. My boys came to cheer me on and I was really glad to see them at the end!

Back home for lunch, which was a yummy tuna salad. I was able to enjoy my lunch and a coffee in peace, as my husband organised the boys.

After lunch I did a bit of housework as we had my husband's family over for afternoon tea. I looked over all of my Mother's Day gifts, including some adorable written notes from my five year old. I love how far he has come since starting school this year- he can now figure out how to spell most words or at least write something that I recognise!

Afternoon tea was a very casual affair, with my brownie, some muffins, and lots of biscuits for the kids. Some bribery with lollipops was needed to get a large family photo, and I also got some lovely shots of me with my boys.

I got to relax for the remainder of the afternoon, with another coffee of course, while my husband prepared dinner. One of his signature dishes is curried sausages, and so that was my Mother's Day dinner, and we watched Paddington as a family.

How was your Mother's Day?

  1. Happy Mother's Day! My husband took the kids out to do a little plant/flower shopping for me today and I did some cleaning, too! I should have sat down and relaxed, but it was nice to get this weeks cleaning DONE and I don't have to think about it the rest of the week. I can't wait to hear about your 5k! I need to sign up for my fall half and 10k!


I love getting comments!
